Both scrimmages are going to be streamed on Wild.com.

This guy is terrible.

Early in the week, I have tried to talk to Minnesota-developed players at camp. This day I chatted with Mike Kramer, who graduated from Princeton this year. He kept the big words to a minimum, which I appreciated.

Kramer played high school hockey at St. Paul Como Park. He is one of three players from the city school to ever play Division I hockey. He is an ex-wrestler with a well-built upper body. I talked with him in the locker room and he had his shirt off.

Is he the full time Gopher blogger? If so, I feel sorry for the fans.

Yes I saw that.
It is the lack of detail / info on the official site....
So far they have held the following
- physicals
- physical testing
- 4 power skating sessions
- 6 strength training sessions,
- team/player picture taking
- 6 sessions of on ice drills
- 4 hours of field training

Barely a picture, no video, no info, stats, details etc.

Yeah I was expecting them to have daily blogs and what not. Disappointing, but hey, free shirts.

it seems that Granlunds skating is developed huge leaps since he got drafted.

That was a complete waste of an article. I want my time back. (Not blaming you, moreso Roman.)

"And then, Mikael did this thing called a slap shot, where you raise the stick off the ice and then strike the puck, which is supposed to make it go faster, but I wasn't sure. And then, Mikael went over to drink some water, from his water bottle. And then, Mikael got a towel, and wiped his visor. And then, Mikael went to the locker room, to take off his shirt, but I wasn't allowed for some reason. And then, I went to watch the video feed, from the nanny cam I hid in a stuffed Nordy that I put in the corner of the locker room."

Not a single positive comment on Roman yet, everyone in Ruosso's latest were complaining too.

No longer attending the scrimmages as we're going out of town now.

I expect detailed write-ups from all of you.

This guy literally makes me want to bang my head on a wall. This has to be the worst piece of journalism, blogging, or even writing in general that i've ever seen. A 3rd-grader could right a more interesting and better written piece.

I think what makes it so annoying is it lacks any kind of perspective. Okay, we get that he took shots and they either missed the net or the goalie made a save. But Russo would have been able to say if he had a good short, the puck came off the blade quick, or did it lack power, etc. And was he the only one who missed the net, or was he just trying to pick corners like everyone else?

and his writing just plain sucks- honestly it was hard to read.

No need for me to pile on, but I think this Roman guy sucks, too! This guy makes Russo look like a Pulitzer prize winner!

Gates open at 10:30. I wonder if 1000 people would be in line by say, 10:00?
